Existential Sandwich

Existential Sandwich

Hey there, I'm Pamela J. Hobart, an academic philosopher turned philosophical life coach in Austin, Texas.

The Existential Sandwich
The existential sandwich is when someone faces regular, day-to-day concerns that actually reveal complicated, abstract existential dilemmas.

As of summer 2022, I've named my email newsletter Existential Sandwich.

Readers appreciate my abstract yet humane approach to topics around productivity, life hacking, maturing as a human adult, and living well in the broadest possible sense.

Though I do sell coaching and mini-courses, I won't spam you - this blog/newsletter stands alone as my humble yet rewarding contribution to the Personal Development Discourse (it needs some help...)

(feel free to come and go from the list as you like, I don't check unsubscribes, I'm not really a proper "marketer" - or a masochist 😬 )
